Stowed-ton Adventures

4/22/17 Second Session (Marathon)
First time in Town, killing orcs, and meeting the red assholes

This session started out with everyone reaching level 2. Hazzah! We also were finally able to take our new Human friend, Sildar Hallwinter, whom we saved from the goblin cave to StowedTon with us. 

When we arrived, Sildar told us about the happenings of the town and the surrounding areas. There was a mage , Iarno Albrek, who was sent by the Lord's Alliance to set up shop at the town and help restore order, but he has not been seen in a while. Also, there was a mine, Wave Cave Echo, which MAY OR MAY NOT  be filled with magical items. To get to the mine, Sildar said that we should find the dwarf, Gundren Rockseeker as he has a map of the location of Wave Cave Echo. Sildar said hat he heard Klarg and the goblin gang talking about sending Gundren to Cragmaw Castle. Sildar then said that he would go into town to get some more information and to get us our damn money that is owed for delivering the goods and saving his dumb HUMAN  ass from the goblins.

Inside the town the group decided that they wanted to do a few things. Melfias decided to go and visit a local temple to see if he could begin training as a cleric. The cleric was a bit eccentric and some loved her while others seemed to fear her.  She said she would teach Melfias in the ways of the cleric if he went and did some tasks for her like getting rid of the red asshole guild that had taken over the town. 

Fox decided that her vial of nail clippings must be the most important discovery since sliced bread and wanted to talk to whoever would listen to her about them. She heard of an old wizard who could maybe give her some answers about them.  When she showed him the clippings he looked at her like she was deep down in the autistic spectrum and said to get out of his shop. Fox threatened him and demanded answers. She apparently forgot this guy was an old ass wizard and he owned her face hard with some paralyze magic. Luckily Melfias was near by and heard the commotion, apologized for his special friend, and dragged a stiff as a board Fox out of the wizards shop. 

Hermoine took her time to go study books. Huge shock. While studying Galthetes was interested in doing some research on a handkerchief he found with a wizards name on it. Hermoine tried to look this person up in the library and did find some info. He was a very old mage who may be dead now. He had some dealings with a Lich and has not been seen in many years. It didnt give Galthetes all of his answers, but it gave him a place to start. Hermoine continued her studies and read up about the local fauna in the area. 

Allora heard about a bank in town and wanted to go scope it out to see if there were any weaknesses in its security. She also found out that is where the head of the town lived. She did not find anything super helpful, but she at least had a target for her next robbery.

Krangor helped bring the cart into town and started to realize the town was filled with many children without homes which made him angry.

After the group did their individual tasks the group decided to go to bulbuss supply shop and bring them the merchant cart. The guy paid everyone for their services and was happy to have all the materials to help the town. He told the party of a nice inn to stay at that had excellent duck. He also said to go and visit the town master as he might have some work for us.

We decided to go to the town master who was a very skittish man. There was a poster of wanted orcs on the wall and the group inquired about it. He gave us a general location in the Krag and we also heard there might be a map there to the magical mine. Weirdly after accepting the job he told us whatever we do, do not mess with the red ass hole clan. This was a very odd request and made messing with the red ass holes a top priorities of the groups… after the orcs.  While there Fox and Allora decided to check the inside of the building out seeing if they could find a safe or where any money was stored. They could not. Fox decided to loiter around the outside of the building to scope it out some more and was awkwardly seen by the town master. She did a shitty job playing it off but the town master was a little bitch and was not going to call her out on it. 

The group then decided to go to the local inn and ask the towns people about the orcs and the red asshole thieves. Inside they met a man and a bar tender who told them that they did not know much about the orcs but there were a band of them and the general location. We also found out that everyone hated the red asshole clan and that they might be holding something over the mayor and that is why he did not want us to attack them. Soon after the bartender asked if we would like to hear a nice story from the local bard. Melfias was pumped as he appreciated very much seeing the craft of other bards.

A rickety old bard appeared and began to tell a story of an ancient evil that lives beneath the town and the legend of a group that stopped his evil once before. They used 3 stones, one each located in a different near by town to help in their fight. Ominous? foreshadowing? only time will tell

After that everyone decided it was time for bed. Melfias paid for rooms drinks, and food for everyone cause he is a boss and everyone else was poor as shit. Krangor and Hermoine got their own room where THEY. GOT. IT. ON. Galthetes demanded to have his own room cause he doesnt even trust his own shadow. Fox attempted to sleep with Melfias, but he did not trust her as they just met and she could be a gold digger trying to get some of his golden sperm to make an anchor baby. He got 4 hookers instead. Fox and Allora ended up sleeping with each other. MEOW!

In the middle of the night Galthetes woke up to find that all of his precious gold had gone missing. In a fit of rage he bashed open Alloras door and blamed her for the theft. She said hey fuck you I didnt take it I wouldnt waste my thief talents on a measly 25 gold that you had. He thought that actually made sense and went to wake up Melfias. When the door was opened the 4 fully pleased hookers were startled and ran away. Melfias angrily asked what was wrong and once Galthetes told him he said to ask Allora to go check him room out as she was good at that kinda stuff. In his room they found a piece of red cloth which obviously belonged to the red asshole club. Galthetes was ready to go and rip the town apart for his 25 gold. The group calmed him down reminded him they had already promised to go and kill the orcs . They promised that after the orcs were taken cared of they would come back and take care of the red douche bags. Galthetes reluctantly agreed. 

The next day the group got ready for their journey. They bought supplies before they left and Allora got some nice tools for thieving. The group rented a wagon and set off for their adventure. 

The group was soon attacked by a bunch of dumb ass mosquitoes. Melfias and Hermoine had the great idea of making an illusion of a dead animal that was on fire that the mosquitos might be interested in. They were for a bit till they realized it was fake and then they went back after the group.  The group then wrecked their shit and Fox was able to extract some poison from the mosquitoes for Allora. They continued on.

Next they were interrupted by a giant ogre holding a tree trunk as a weapon. Melfias tried to bargain with him by offering him a mace and 5 shineys. He didnt take it and it was a mistake…. for the ogre. Hermoine then made an illusionary chest filled with treasure to distract the Ogre. When the orge went to grab from the chest the group stabbed the ever living shit out of him. It was a blood bath. Krangor made him explode into a radiant mist with his divine smite. The ogres whore of a wife heard the commotion and saw the death of her husband, and in a rage she charged the group. Soon she met the same fate as her dim witted husband. An entire family killed in an instant. For good measure they took the orges head cause he wasnt going to need it anyways. They continued on. 

Soon they found tracks that looked like they belonged to orcs. Fox was able to track them back to a cave. Out side the cave was one lone orc on watch. Fox, Allora, and Galthetes tried to sneak up to the orc to capture him for interrogation. Galthetes was seen and the orc tried to make a break for the cave. Hemoine put that sucka to sleep in a blink of an eye. The group caught up to the sleeping orc and tied him up. They then questioned him about who and what was inside the cave. He was not that helpful and for his actions the group also took his head. 

Soon the group positioned them selves outside the cave and Allora took point as she usually does to scout the area ahead. Inside she found a group of 6 orcs, another ogre, and a lead orc. She got their attention and ran out of the cave while leaving ball bearings at the entrance. The ogre was the first to run out and he met his fate very quickly. The rest of the orc group were behind him. One slipped on the ball bearings while the rest poured out the cave. They surrounded Galthetes and knocked his ass out. The rest of the group was luckily able to fend them off and kill all of the orcs. They then went and as a trophy and proof of the kill took the orc leaders head. They then went and filled their pockets with all the treasurer and gold that they could. They sadly inside in the cave did not find a map or a dwarven brother.

Victorious the group headed back to town. Along the way the group decided to play a bit of victory stump and get drunk. A strange person appeared, and played with them.  The group was excited and didnt care and agreed to let him play. The group did all they could to fuck Melfias out of the game as quick as possible and it worked. Slowly it dwindled down until only Krangor and the strange man were left. The strange man was able to win the game, but as a parting gift for how Krangor played he gave him a magical mug that filled with beer once the keeper of the mug said stump. He then vanished. Weird. The group continued along their path.

There were some road blocks along the way like some wolves who wanted a piece, but Fox calmed them down and made them turn away. They made the right choice. They would have made a fine coat. When they got back to town they gave the master of the town the head and told him his issues were dealt with. For doing this the group got more gold and LEVELED UP TO 3!!!!!

Everyone got trained in new bad ass skills, hit points were raising, people were getting naked having sex in the streets. shit gets wild when people hit level 3! After that was done the group decided it was time to deal with the red band of dingalings. They were told they frequent the sleeping giant inn. The group headed there to investigate.

At the inn Allora wanted to use her new awesome grappling hook to climb up to the attic of the inn to see what was going on. Fox also snuck into the in through the back door. Allora was able to find some red cloaks that could be used as disguises. After waiting a while and getting bored the rest of the group decided to barge in and start to try and party with the crew of red fuckers. They were able to gain their trust by showing them this awesome new mug they had and bringing in a bunch of women for them to enjoy. They started to spill all their secrets like where they head quarters was, who their leaders were, and how they were holding the town hostage. The party then asked if they could join the group. The red uncle fuckers went and got their lead recruiter, Jim. He came back and gave the party a stupid hard task to join their crew that was never going to happen. For his dumb behavior the party decided it was time to end this night of fun and kill everyone. Melfias put the magic kill sign above Jims head and the group got ready to fight. During this time Fox wanted to go and scout ahead at the head quarters to see what she could find. 

While scouting at the head quarters Fox could hear the whimpers of what sounded like some sort of cat like animal. She got excited as she loves cats. She decided it would be best if the rest of the group was here before she went exploring further and she headed back to the Inn.

At the inn a brawl was happening. Hermoine was paralyzing people and Krangor was fucking them up. Galthetes was slicing dudes in half. Allora was sneaking around stabbing bitches in the face. But Melfias.. he was getting a little too excited. After killing the leader, Jim, and a few others Melfias deiced to intimate the rest of the group into a surrender by showing them the bag of heads the group had collected. They did and he had them all tied up. He began interrogating them one by one demanding to know what was at their head quarters, what traps there were, etc. and if people were to slow to answer he killed them. He killed 3 of them very quickly which made the last one start to have a panic attack. Melfias demanded a map of the house be drawn, but all he could do was scribble. Melfias had enough of his shit and kill him as well. With the little new info the group got they headed over to the red bitch club house. They ran in to Fox along the way.

Fox showed them the doorway she used to get into the house and the group began exploring. Going in the direction of the cat cause Fox was all giddy about finding a kitty. In the first room they found 3 coffins which they of coarse decided needed to be open so they could steal from the dead. The inhabitants of the coffins were not impressed and 3 skeletons attacked. They were wrecked in the face. The group continued on. 

They soon found a room filled with arms and armor. They kill the guys in the room and took what they wanted and continued on. The next room was a room filled with soldiers gambling. Using the red cloaks that Allora had collected from the attic of the sleeping giant inn the group disguised them selves to take part of the game. Allora tried to use her weighted dice to take advantage of the game… but it didnt work to well. As a way to make up for her mistake in cheating all of the red shit bricks had to die. And die they did. Allora got all her money back and then some. The group continued on.

In a secret hall, the call of the kitty cat began to grow louder. Fox could feel its presence was close. She soon found a fake wall and a secret rom behind it. There in a cage stood the most magnificent beast she had ever laid eyes on, Panthey the black panther. She called him down and released him from his cage. The panther was grateful but not ready to fight yet. He followed the group around as he did not know what else to do. 

The group continued into a secret basement room that was huge and had a ravine in the middle with a bridge. On the other side of the bridge hidden behind a pillar, Allora saw a mysterious figure. Using telepathy the figure told her if she left him alone she would give her gold. She accepted and she found a mysterious chest filled with gold. The group did not really  notice it and they continued on in to a bedroom that was obviously the living quarters of a wizard. They found a little mouse inside the room who ran off as soon as they entered. Inside they found some sweet items and treasurer.  They found that this was the room of the wizard Yarno, the one told to watch over the town for the trade guild. Why would that wizard have a room with the red sluts? things were starting to get interesting… and this plot is getting realll reallll thick.

Creation and first Meeting

This session started with all players forming the details of their back stories. You can read each story by clicking the following links:

krangor

galthetes

hermoine

After this was completed and every found out who they loved, hated, and what weird trinket we started the game with and guess what they were for. Like those clippings what they hell are they going to do?

Play started with all the PCs, but fox in the town of rockton meeting with two dwarves. They had a job for the party to bring a wagon of supplies to the town of Stowed-ton. The group agreed to the task. The dwarves headed out first as they had to make arrangements at Stowed-ton while the rest of the group began travel with the wagon. 

Shortly, into their journey, Fox, noticed the traveling wagon and also the goblins waiting in ambush. Before the Goblins could attack Fox shot an arrow though one of the Goblin archers skull. The rest of the goblins began their assault of the wagon and the party got ready for a fight. Fox decided to help out the party as she recognized someone in the group and they were attacked unprovoked. 

The party beat the shit out of the 4 goblins. Hermoine shot a fire bolt right through a goblins chest, Krangor threw an axe into another ones head, and Allora got off a few sneak attacks but got slightly injured. The group kept one goblin alive who told them of a cave where they were keeping all the loot they had been stealing from passing carts. They also noticed that there were 2 dead horses in the street. They investigated the horses and realized they belong to the two dwarves that had set out to Stowed-ton ahead of them. They also saw a trailed of dragged bodies off in the direction of the cave the goblin talked about.

After much debate the group decided to go to the cave. First though, Fox wanted to scout ahead and took the goblin with her for directions to the cave and to make her aware of any traps. She found the cave which was 5 miles away. She then killed the goblin that gave her the info as he was a liability.  She ran back to the group to let them know what she had found. The group decided to head to the cave after they were able to convince Galthetes that there was money to be had in the cave and they wouldn't get paid if the people that gave them the job were dead. What a dick face.  Tony played some music to try and calm the group, but he sucked and just made the group more angry.

The group arrived at the mouth of the cave which was surround by a thick brush. Fox, Hermoine, and Allora decided to sneak up to see what they could find. They found 2 goblins in a tower and they were able to kill them before the realized what was happening. They then sent Allora up ahead to scout and see if they could find a mysterious bridge that the goblin had mentioned, that was set on fire if they found invaders. Instead she found a room with 3 wolves. Fox being the animal lover that she was went up to them to calm then down, which she gave them a red rocket, and then Krangor pulled out their chains and released them. The wolves ran out of the cave very happy.

In the back of the wolf area there was a poop chute chimney. Allora snuck up it to see what was on the other side, and there she found the bug bear who was the boss of the goblins. The group devised a plan to have Hermoine place an illusion of treasure near the poop chute to distract them while the rest of the group went to attack from behind. Krangor would guard Hermoine. When fox shot an arrow at the near by wall they knew to set off the trap. 

The rest of the group continued down the cave until they found a bridge. This must be the bridge that goes on fire they thought! The group could see a Goblin at the top of the bridge with an axe, probably to cut the bridge down. Allora decided to climb up to the top of the bridge sneak behind the goblin and attempt to take him out. She missed terribly. The other members tried to shoot arrows at th goblin. They also all missed. The goblin yelled flood and water started to rush down the cavern. Allora, fox, and Galthetes were able to climb up to the bridge with no issues, but the unathletic Melfias was not so lucky. He was not able to get up in time,but luckily was able to acrobatically dodge the rushing stream of water. He was able to get pulled up to the bridge and was safe. The only issue was that all the goblins now knew the party was there. 

Fox went and fired her arrow at the wall to signal to start the trap from Krangor and Hermoine. She next went first into the new room and saw 3 goblins ready to fire their arrows into her.  She was able to hit one of them. Next Allora entered the room and tried to attack a goblin, but missed. The goblin soon after hit her and caused a moderate injury.  Galthetes was next and went and butchered a goblin. Stabbed the mother fucker right in the face. He felt like the man. Melfias was able to go soon after and tried to viciously mock the poor goblin. Instead he complicated the goblin and the goblin felt even stronger then normal. He was able to heal up Allora which was helpful. The goblin then attempted to shoot at fox, but she dodged, returned fire, and killed another Goblin. The final goblin was taken out by an Allora sneak attack while the goblin was attacking Fox. 

Meanwhile with the other pair, Hermoine knew it was time to set her trap. She made a giant golden statue appear near the shoot and Krangor tried to sneak up behind it. Krangor is not so great at sneaking as he is a giant pally in heavy armor and was seen. The bugbear, his pet wolf, and the two goblins decided it was time to attack. Hermoine went and got into a corner with Krangor protecting her. Krangor tried to attack the bug bear but missed but was still able to protect Hermoine. Hermoine began chanting her first major spell ever, Sleep! She casted it on the bug bear and the wolf, but was only able to put the wolf to sleep, but still it was enough. With the rest of the group having taken out the 3 goblins in the other room they began to converge on the bug bear. Melfias was able to cast his first power spell as well, Dissonant whispers! The spell hurt the bug bear and made him run around wildly while giving Krangor another chance to attack… which he missed. No matter! Fox and Allora were able to storm into the room and finish off the bugbear before he could do any real damage. Then as a team building exercise everyone decided to surround the sleeping wolf and stab the shit out of him. Wolf be dead. Like really really dead. 

Krangor, the paladin, a warrior of light then decided the best coarse of action would be the cut off the fucking bugbears head to show proof to the locals that he was dead. Brutal. The group then cut off the bug bears fucking head. Allora meanwhile saw a treasure chest and went to open it. Inside she found a jade figurine, 2 health potions, and money totally about 17 gp. She snuck the 2 health potions into her pocket while Galthetes watched cause she is slick like that. He did not notice. She then showed the group the money and the figurine which was determined not to be magical. The group decided to explore the rest of the cave as they had not found who they were looking for. In another room they found one of the original dwarves they had gotten their task form. He was badly beaten and a goblin held a knife to his neck. Hermoine took the head and said to let him go or their will have the same fate as their leader. She also started to juggle a fire bolt around her fingers to show she meant real business. Melfias also made angry faces to help be intimidating. The goblin agreed if he was allowed to live and leave the cave he would let the prison go. They followed him to the mouth of the cave and he did as he said he would. The group was elated to have everything go pretty smoothly and decided to take loot the cave and bring back the supplies to the wagon. They also took a rest as they deserved one.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
